Barbara Jean Schill, 80, of Sonny Lane, Venus PA passed away on Saturday, July 28, 2018 after a brief illness.

She was a member of St. Michael Church in Fryburg. She had a very active social life and still remained busy catering for the Lions Club of Knox, PA. Some of her passions were playing 500 bid in many different card clubs, sitting around a campfire, going out to enjoy Bluegrass Music and Elvis impersonators, driving her Amish neighbors, and taking afternoon drives with family and friends.


She is survived by her sons, Robert G. Schill of Florida, Walter E. Schill of Marienville, and one daughter Barbara (Gary) Seitz of Venus. Her siblings surviving include Carl Ochs of Lucinda, Cele Schill of Lucinda, Jerry (Diane) Ochs of Lucinda, Lois Ochs of California, and Nick Ochs of Arizona and a brother-in-law Larry (Chris) Schill.

She will be sadly missed by all.


Jean was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Walter, her sister Sally Dechant, sister-in-law Delene Ochs, brother-in-law Richard F. Schill and sister-in-law Sally Ochs
